To people not familiar with North Carolina’s Workers’ Compensation, it can be confusing and downright impossible to understand. But the most important thing to remember is that Workers’ comp was set up to provide quick remedy to a worker’s injury. Unlike other types of personal injuries, being injured on the job does not require you or your employer to accept the blame. The important thing is that you can prove you were at work when the injury occurred.
Workers’ compensation provides disability benefits and medical compensation. Disability benefits are payments to you for lost work. Medical compensation, or medical care, is in place to provide you with the treatment and doctors you need to get better, and the get back on the job.
